CVE-2020-16009 and CVE-2020-16010 are remote code-execution and heap-based buffer overflow flaws respectively and affect both the desktop and Android versions of Google's web browser.

To ensure that you have a safe version of Chrome installed, you will need to update. On the desktop, head to the About screen and a check will be performed. On Android, you will need to launch Google Play and check for updates.
